These are the categories of publisher that are relevant to 'Earth and Environmental Science Transactions of the Royal Society of Edinburgh'.
In general, the lowest category in the list below takes priority regarding copyright and policies. This is not clear and certain, however, for 'Client organisations' and 'Associate organisations'.
|Definition:||A publishing house run by an educational institution. May publish on behalf of 3rd party organisations|
|Case/E.g.:||Liverpool University Press|
|Guidance:||University publishers often operate the same was as commercial publisher, but are owned and controlled by an academic institution. They may just publish journals from their own institution. They may also publish journals on behalf of learned societies and similar client organisations. Client organisations usually retain their rights.|
|Definition:||Society or organisation whose journals are published for them by a publishing house|
|Case/E.g.:||Publishing house declarations: 'Published on behalf of...', 'Journal of the ...'|
|Guidance:||Copyright probably held by the client organisation, but not certain. If the publishing house does not allow you to archive, you could contact the client organisation. RoMEO gives the policies of client organisations where known. Otherwise it gives the policies of their publishing house.|
